The rugged, lightweight terminal is based on ViaSat SurfBeam® 2 technology and builds on the success that made ViaSat SurfBeam the product of choice for Ka-band direct-to- home Internet service. With more than a million terminals shipped, the SurfBeam network has a record of proven reliability, scalability and performance.
The ViaSat SurfBeam 2 Pro Portable Terminal is designed for users requiring high throughput connectivity in a compact and portable package. Field reporters, remote medical and peace workers, and emergency responders benefit from high-speed Internet with the convenience of “near-instant” connectivity even in locations where no other communications infrastructure is available. The form factor is ruggedized to support operation in harsh conditions and supports multiple configuration options to suit user needs. The complete system, including the satellite terminal and antenna, can be packed into a single case for transit and is lightweight enough to be carried by a single user.
The unit enables fast web browsing and supports video streaming, file transfers, VPN connections, and bandwidth-intensive Internet applications. It is capable of delivering downstream rates up to 40 Mbps and upstream rates up to 20 Mbps, and provisioning tools enable the network operator to create different classes of service with configurable downstream and upstream rates. The modem has an embedded acceleration client that works with acceleration servers in the gateway to provide a faster, more responsive user experience. With four standard Ethernet connections, the terminal natively supports up to 4 IP devices, such as PCs, cameras, and routers as well as other user equipment. The antenna includes a collapsible satellite reflector and feed, transmit and receive electronics. The modem can be deployed attached to or located separately from the antenna.
